All of our swings are made to order so you can have just the swing you want. We offer two sizes, 74″ x 30″ or 64″ x 24″. The larger size is ideal for stretching out and most customers find the smaller size, with the narrower seat, more suited to sitting up. We offer twelve Sunbrella colors for you to choose from and additional custom colors are available upon request.
The swing backs are designed to block the wind and to keep you securely tucked inside and provide minimal support when sitting upright. Swing ends provide maximum support and the ultimate comfort when sitting upright and leaning back.

While we recommend that the porch swing/hammock hang under cover, such as on a screened or covered porch for maximum wear, all the materials we use are outdoor fabrics and materials. If you choose to hang your porch swing/hammock in the open we recommend that you treat the wooden frame with a water sealant to protect it from direct exposure to the elements.
Sunbrella has a 10 year guarantee against fading and is mildew resistant. While any fabric exposed to the elements may mildew, periodic cleaning of your swing will keep it looking beautiful.
We recommend that you periodically wipe down your swing with a damp sponge. Sunbrella is an extremely versatile fabric, which is stain resistant. The key is to clean up spills promptly. The foam may be removed from the cushion to machine wash and line dry. We recommend that you clean and dry your porch swing/hammock before packing it away for the season.
